Aloha, Your review is absolutely amazing, thank you so much for sharing with us and our future guests. Mac has always been a superstar on the tours, definitely quite the showman that our guests truly love and can't wait to come back and see him again. It sounds like you really had a good time with him, Mac spoke very highly of the group and the tour that he had. I showed him this review and he smiled from ear to ear. Thank you again for sharing and I really hope that you let us know when you come back! Mahalo!
